Hailing from France, one of the biggest markets and breeding stock for bands within the Tech Metal and Progressive Rock scene, Uneven Structure was formed in may 2008 from the intention of Benoit Friedrich (bass) and Igor Omodei (guitar) to finally bring the technically enhanced and progressive music they had been working on for themselves alive. The sound they were aiming to create was a one of a kind merger of groovy polyrythmic guitar riffs with huge slick of ambient guitar leads, which they undoubtedly accomplished.

Since the release of the debut album "Februus" in 2011 the band did multiple European tours with tech metal and prog rock genre-leaders such as Protest The Hero, Textures or Tesseract and performed at festivals such as Brutal Assault or Euroblast. While listening to the new album "La Partition" you will hear and feel the progress and growing the band made since "Februus", due to the fact that their sound is now even more complex and perfectly arranged, catchy, experimental and technically enhanced, but also groovy. A perfect combination of the hardness of metal with the elaborate techniques of prog and the atmospheric sounds of ambient.

Not only has the sound of Uneven Structure been growing and changing with this new album, but also the band internally. With Arnaud Verrier on drums (ex Zuul FX and Kadinja) and Steeves Hostin (Beyond The Dust) as guitarist the band is more than perfectly prepared to continue their legacy, but also to open a new chapter in their musical career by performing mindblowing live shows all over the world.

Line Up:
Arnaud Verrier - Drums
Benoit Friedrich - Bass
Igor Omodei -  Guitar, Production, Videos
Jérôme Colombelli - Guitar

THE ROYAL announce new album 'Seven' & reveal video for 'Wildmind'

THE ROYAL announce new album 'Seven' & reveal video for 'Wildmind'

THE ROYAL have released their new single and video 'Wildmind' off their upcoming album Seven, which was premiered by Revolver Magazine and Morecore.de last week.

Guitarist JD Liefting comments:

"This song is about doing what you really want to do in life. In this society it is very hard to really pursue your goals and dreams and a lot of people just let go of them completely over time and will tell you that it is impossible, that people who try to fight for their dreams are simply not realistic. But that's nonsense. It is hard because society is not built on dreams, it’s built on whatever it needs. But if you keep believing in yourself and keep working hard you can do whatever you want to do and be truly free."

Check out the video here:

Seven will be released worldwide on March 31st on Long Branch Records, pre-orders are available here: http://theroyal.lnk.to/SevenPR?mc_cid=289041b910&mc_eid=c0fdde66a9

Taking influence from the whole metal spectrum to create their unique brand of metalcore, Dutch 5-piece THE ROYAL are about to make a huge global impact with their very first label released record Seven on Long Branch Records.

Formed in Eindhoven late 2012, these five ambitious young men began writing and recording DIY style and displayed incredible promise in poignant and powerful writing from the off. They self-released their EP, Origins, in 2012 and their single, 'Blind Eye', in 2013, followed by their first full-length Dreamcatchers in 2014, gaining huge momentum on the continent. Support shows with the likes of Architects and Breakdown Of Sanity, and slots at Jera On Air and Impericon Festival followed, further elevating the band’s status throughout Europe.

THE ROYAL fuse metal, groove and melody, delivered with the precision and style of a band who are well beyond their years. This, combined with their flowing vocals and thoughtful lyrics, and their stellar live performance, shows that THE ROYAL is a force to be reckoned with.

2017 will see the band tour throughout Europe - dates to be announced soon.

'Denmark's next big thing'
Metal Hammer

GHOST IRIS have released new single and video  'Save Yourself' from their upcoming album Blind World. 

Premiered by Metal Hammer, check it out here:

Vocalist Jesper Vicencio Gün said "Save Yourself is the next level of Ghost Iris. We wanted to create almost a pop song but with metal instrumentals, which I think we achieved. The video is our bid for a "Euphoric State" pt. 2. We upgraded from the bicycle to a limo. We're funny like that." 

Blind World will be released worldwide on 17 February via Long Branch Records. The album contains 10 brand new tracks from Denmark's most streamed metal act in 2016, including the singles 'Pinnacle' and 'Save Yourself'.

UK tour dates to be announced soon.

The Toulouse four-piece are an impressive cross-genre blend.

For fans of Karnivool, Deftones, Tool, Thrice and more, RIVIẼRE's material makes for an immensely interesting and satisfying listen. 

A completely new act on the scene, RIVIẼRE have spent the last two years working tirelessly on their debut release, and it shows. Acclaimed by Metalsucks, SkullsnBones, It Djents and more, the future is bright for this unique and highly talented band, already starting to attract heaps of attention.

WITHIN THE RUINS release studio diary ahead of new album

WITHIN THE RUINS release studio diary ahead of new album

Halfway Human out 3rd March via Long Branch Records.

Massachusetts metal veterans WITHIN THE RUINS have upped the ante ahead of their new album release with the unveiling of a new studio diary.

Watch Making of Halfway Human Part 1 here:

The teaser video comes ahead of new album, Halfway Human, due for release on 03.03.17 via Long Branch Records. The band recorded the new effort from their own studio with producer and guitar player Joe Cocchi at the helm. Vocal production took place at Zing studios in Westfield, MA with Jim Fogarty (Killswitch Engage, The Devil Wears Prada).

Halfway Human will be the band's follow up to the critically acclaimed Phenomena LP released in 2014 which Metal Injection called a "well refined album with more surprises than one would expect."

Born and bred in the same heavy metal rich Northeast soil as New Wave Of American Heavy Metal progenitors Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, Unearth and Shadows Fall and weaned on the dark sounds of classic death metal, the technical melodicism of Scandinavia and the precision staccato crunch of Meshuggah, Within The Ruins have busted their collective ass to carve out a unique identity for themselves from those ingredients. 

Within The Ruins are refreshingly authentic, feverishly committed and have proven that they will endure. Filled with power, deserving of utter respect, armed with concise compositions and technical might, Within The Ruins will not be stopped. 

 Brand new post-blackened progressive band ASIRA announce debut LP; stream first ever track

Brand new post-blackened progressive band ASIRA announce debut LP; stream first ever track

Today sees the birth of a new band: post-blackened progressive death metal outfit Asira, who announce their debut LP Efference for 07th April 2017.

In recognition of the moment, the band are streaming a new track, 'Crucible of Light'. First premiered via Terrorizer, you can listen to the track here:


It is rare that you come across a debut album so starkly beautiful and intensely powerful as Asira’s first release, Efference. A vehement disregard for genre conventions, Efference is a stunning mixture of blues, progressive metal, post-blackened metal and ambience.
Such perfectly melded contradictions capture the essence of Efference. For fans of Alcest, Opeth, Ulver, Anathema, and more, this is an album for all fans of forward thinking heavy music. Post-genre, moving beyond convention.
Asira are a brand new band, with no past. A blank slate for the listener to draw their own conclusions, the band are launching their career with the release of Efference.

 Belgian math metallers BEAR premiere new song and video 'Masks'

Belgian math metallers BEAR premiere new song and video 'Masks'

 Album '///' due for release on April 7 via Basick Records  

Belgian math metallers BEAR have premiered their new single and video 'Masks' on Metal Injection.

Watch the video here:

The song is the first to be taken from their third full-length album '/// ' which is set for release on 7 April 2017 via Basick Records.

'///' is BEAR’s most evocative and vitriolic album to date, comprising of eleven blistering tracks of crushingly heavy rhythms, distorted harmonies and demonic growls. Bearing resemblance to tech metal forerunners Meshuggah and the no-nonsense aggression of The Dillinger Escape Plan, BEAR have a stylistic quality to them and this album is the exact embodiment of that.

Comments guitarist Leander Verheyen Tsjakalov, "Masks is about people who are afraid of being themselves, they put on a mask but behind that they still are the same person. The video reflects that. Only in the end the lead character in the video, who finds a mask to hide behind, loses her face. It's an analogy for losing your true self if you pretend to be what you are not."

After releasing their last album Noumenon in 2013, the band spent considerable time on the road throughout the UK and Europe, including appearances at UK Tech-Metal Festival, Euroblast and Groezrock. 

'///' is released on April 7th via Basick Records.
